I would like to put out a heart thanks to all of you who served. We will never forget what you did for this country, if not for you I honestly don't know what would have become of the United States. God Bless you all!! You will never be forgotten.

My daddy was supposed to have been at Pearl Harbor, but he got sick and he wasn't there so that's why I'm here today. I salute all the brave men and women then and now who have fought (and still do) to keep this country free....FREEDOM IS NOT FREE!!!!!

Posts like this that are started give me warm fuzzies...it makes me so proud to know that first of all, there are people out there who genuinely CARE about our fellow soldiers who have volunteered to give their lives for our freedom. Secondly, I just wish that more people realized and appreciated the people who fought, are fighting now and will fight in the future for all of us. We should be extremely proud...I know I am.
